Antisocial behaviour is a very wide-ranging term including fighting, stealing, and temper tantrums among many other things. It may not make sense to consider these behaviours as a single construct but to identify meaningful subsets that may have different causes, outcomes and respond well to different treatments. Currently popular classification schemes are based on age at onset and the presence of callousness. Projects can investigate the effectiveness of different classification schemes in a range of existing large-scale datasets. This project would be particularly suited to someone wishing to develop skills in advanced quantitative methodologies.
